~Duck Egg Blue how i love you~

Well my friends, I have fallen in love. with a new color that is!  Since getting my new chalk paint, Duck egg blue is my very favorite. Its muted and rich and lovely.  here is a hutch i painted, the inside is Paris grey. It lasted a whole 2 days at the shop :)
I love how the paint changes colors with each piece you paint depending on the wood. love-love-love it
I forgot to take a before picture! darn it!! it was brown and boring, im sure you know exactly what im talking about!

here is a little maple cabinet i just finished:


Happy Painting!!
